This last little tidbit gives us some insight into what is perhaps the most curious aspect of the Russian-hackers-campaign-for-Trump story: the FBI’s complete dependence on Crowdstrike’s analysis. Amazingly, the FBI did no independent forensic work on the DNC servers before Crowdstrike got its hot little hands on them: indeed, the DNC denied the FBI access to the servers, and, as far as anyone knows, the FBI never examined them. BuzzFeed quotes an anonymous “intelligence official” as saying “Crowdstrike is pretty good. There’s no reason to believe that anything they have concluded is not accurate.”
As I’ve been saying for months, there is no evidence that the Russians hacked the DNC: none, zilch, nada. Yet this false narrative is the entire basis of a campaign launched by the Democrats, hailed by the Trump-hating media, and fully endorsed by the FBI and the CIA, the purpose of which is to “prove” that Trump is “Putin’s puppet,” as Hillary Clinton put it. Now the investigative powers of the federal government are being deployed to confirm that the Trump campaign “colluded” with the Kremlin in an act the evidence for which is collapsing.
This whole affair is a vicious fraud. If there is any justice in this world – and there may not be – the perpetrators should be charged, tried, and jailed.
I would think that it was evidence and if the police wanted a piece of evidence that was in my possession and I refused to turn it over then I might be charged with obstruction of justice .
It's one of the very suspicious unanswered questions. An allegation involving a national security threat requires federal investigation. It makes absolutely no sense that someone can makes such an accusation and then to refuse access to the crime scene to the proper authorities.

All I can say is something huge is being covered up in the Dem Party.
Good question, OP.
Why didn't Comey demand to see the DNC computers if it was Russian hacking?
Why didn't Comey's agents who questioned Hillary at her home record their interview?
Why were four Pakistani IT guys given access to Democrat lawmakers' sensitive data when those guys had a history of suspicious activity? Were they even vetted? They even had passwords!
Why did the likes of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Joaquin Castro have these rogue IT guys with questionable backgrounds on their payroll?
Why wasn't the FBI aware of all this...or were they?
Lots of questions for Comey. Was he inept, disinterested, or complicit?
